How to Download a Free Computer Cleaner

by Contributor

Browsing the Internet is something that most of us do every day. But when you go to the wrong sites, you can end up with some nasty surprises on your computer. Luckily, there are a number of free programs you can download to clean things up and get your computer back to normal.

Go to the website for a free computer cleaner, such as AVG. Use the link provided below.

Click on the "Get it Now" button on the left-hand side under "Free Basic Protection." Note that the "Get it Now" button on the right-hand side links to the paid version of the program, which is more effective.

Click on the "System Requirements" tab to make sure that your computer can handle running the AVG computer cleaning program. As long as your computer meets the minimum specs, click on the "Choose your protection level" tab, then scroll down and click the "Download" button under the AVG Free column.

Scroll halfway down the page and click on the "Download Now" button directly under the picture of the anti-virus software. This will bring you to a special download page, where you can click on a giant link with an arrow to download the file.

If the link in Step 4 doesn't work, scroll further down to the bottom of the page and click the small link that says "download from AVG directly." This will allow you to download the file.

Tip

  • check Once you've downloaded the file, just double-click it to start the installation process.

Warning

  • close Beware of installing too many computer cleaners at once, as they may interfere with each other.
